Paper Abstract

In this paper we report results of a model of a fast capillary discharge (FCD) and discuss them in comparison with experiments. The overall good coincidence between theory and experiment and the observation of stable reproducible compression are beneficial properties of FCD which open the possibility for achieving X-ray laser action in a compact discharge device. The required discharge parameters for lasing in different atomic elements have been calculated.
